  • Description:
    In today’s world where diseases spread rapidly without respect for borders, officials rely on technology to deliver accurate information in real time. Public health informatics is the systematic use of health information, technology, and computer science for public health practice, research, and learning. Informatics shapes public health programs by using electronic disease surveillance systems and other web‐based reporting systems to ensure the availability of critical information for making sound decisions. In 2008, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) established the Global Public Health Informatics Program (GPHIP) to improve public health informatics science to support CDC’s global mission. GPHIP collaborates with the global health community to promote data‐based decision making and applies best practices to design, develop, and deploy health information systems. GPHIP is designated as a World Health Organization Collaborating Center for Public Health.
